Ensambles Ballet Folklórico de San Francisco was founded by Zenón Barrón and Jorge Pacheco (1970-1997) in 1992. The two men met in México, as dancers, but eventually Pacheco moved to San Francisco, where he continued dancing. Years later, it would be Pacheco who would inspire and motivate Barrón to also move to San Francisco in order to pursue their shared dream of forming their own dance company. What began as a gathering of a few dancers has now grown to three generations of dancers and over hundreds of individuals that have been touched and inspired by the artistic vision of Zenón Barrón. Together, Barrón and the company have brought to life the magnificent world of dance and music that this city is known for. Ensambles is a unique dance ensemble made up of a diverse group of talented dancers who vary in levels of experience, age, ethnicity, and professions. Ensambles is comprised of 35 dancers from different dance backgrounds, and ethnicities. Many started with the Ensambles Dance Academy and transitioned to dancing with the company in their early teen years while others have danced with Ensambles for over 20 years. Ranging from high school students, and adults with little dance experience, to seasoned dance professionals. All are committed to the continuation of one of the richest manifestations of tradition and culture in México—folkloric dance.
